Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 11:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....

User style/CSS to get rid of Google's "come here often" pop-up

Posted 01-12-2016 at 02:00 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Seems to work for me on firefox/iceweasel:

Code:
@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("google.com")
 .gb_ga, .gb_g { display: none !important; }
British users probably need to change the domain to "google.co.uk" and likewise for some other countries that aren't subdomains of google.com;]

Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 10:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-14-2016 at 03:32 AM by the dsc (improvement)

Here's an example for GIMP:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

grep -B 10 gimp ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel | \ 
grep

Download files from a list while (re)naming them at the same time

Posted 11-27-2015 at 01:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

"wget -i" is perhaps the tool of choice to download files from a list, but it doesn't allow you to set custom file names for the individual files on the list file. So, if you want to download a bunch of podcast episodes, but would want each file to have a descriptive file name rather than "12345.mp3", it won't help you.

A simple alternative is to have a download list with the file URLS followed by the "-O" flag and desired file name, and read this file...
